The Performance Management Process
The City University of New York follows a performance management process (PMP) that links planning and goal setting by the University and its colleges and professional schools, measures annual progress towards key goals, and recognizes excellent performance.
The Performance Management Process is continuous. The process begins in the early spring when the Chancellor publishes the University's performance targets for the upcoming academic year. The PMP is guided by the University’s Master Plan and contains targets and objectives for three goals: 1) Raise Academic Quality, 2) Improve Student Success and, 3) Enhance Financial and Management Effectiveness.
To inform the campus planning, the University Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) generates the Performance Management Report, a report that contains data for more than one hundred indicators. Using this information along with campus specific information, each college president, working with their executive team and the college community, develops performance targets that are responsive to the University targets. Lehman’s PMP targets are also aligned with campus documents and processes such as Lehman’s Strategic Plan Achieving the Vision.
The College Performance Goals and Targets are sent to the Chancellor in June of each year and the work to accomplish the targets takes place during the academic year. The performance goals for each CUNY college are posted on the CUNY website. At the end of the academic year the Central office review team evaluates the performance of each College. The review team considers the year-end report prepared by the College and the Performance Management Report (data book) produced by OIRA.
